Eight MDP students joined Stephanie Buechler and Kristina Bishop on a one day field trip to Sonora. The group visited with small-scale farmers who grow and process fruit and vegetables for local consumption. Students learned about the challenged faced by small-scale producers including how the long-term drought has impacted production.
